Choosing the best pillow for neck pain: A Guide

September 5, 2022 | Written by SleepyCat Team

Do you often wake up with headaches? Are neck, shoulder, or arm pain daily struggles in the morning? Do you know that your pillow might be the cause?

Although it seems  like a small matter, a pillow also plays a vital role in establishing restorative sleep. Sleeping on the wrong kind of pillow for 7-8 hours can affect your rest. Therefore, finding the perfect pillow is important and is an essential investment for your health!

Everyone has different preferences and sleeping habits, and with the amount of time you spend in bed, you should choose a pillow that suits you. So, brush off the ‘one-size-fits-all’, and don’t settle for something that brings discomfort.

Here’s a pillow guide to help you figure out how to choose the best pillow for your neck pain:

What are your sleeping patterns and habits? 

Do you sleep on your side? On your belly? Do you lie on your back? Or a combination of them all? Knowing how you sleep tells you what sort of support your neck and spine require when you’re in bed, which, in turn, will help you decide on the perfect pillow for your neck pain.

 Contour SoftTouch Memory Foam Pillow

Side sleepers should go for the cervical neck pillows for that extra cushiony support around your head, neck, and shoulders to dial down the discomfort and gently cradle your head so that you don’t toss and turn all night long.

P.S.: If you’re a side sleeper, check out our Contour SoftTouch Memory Foam Pillow, which is comfortably firm and tailored especially for side sleepers.

Hybrid Pillow

Back sleepers should choose a medium loft pillow that is good enough to provide the support needed for  their neck and spine.

Enter thehybrid pillow. Why is ahybrid pillow good for back sleepers, you ask? Because of what goes inside it. Combining the best of supportive memory foam  with a soft, 100% virgin microfiber fill, this pillow makes it easier for you to get comfortable as you like it. Our Hybrid Pillow would be the best pillow for your neck pain and for you to be on your way to sleep like a baby, or even a sloth, or a happy cat!

Thin Pillow

Stomach sleepers usually go for flat pillows. Choosing a soft, thinner pillow keeps your neck in a neutral position without elevating your head too high. Slim Pillow would be great for you, all you need to do is lie down, close your eyes, and drift away. It helps maintain your neutral spine position,  or that posture where your back stops hurting, and you let out a sigh of relief. Try Slim Pillow and thank us later!

Pro Tip: Ensure that, aside from your sleeping position, your mattress firmness also has an effect on your pillow choice.

 If you sleep on a firm mattress, then your body will not sink as much as when you’re lying on a softer mattress. Therefore, the pillow height required to fill up the space between the neck and shoulder will be different too.
